BBC Creates Assisted Suicide Sitcom



Text  



Har de har: The BBC is creating a comedy series called Way to Go about friends who establish an assisted suicide business. “Way to go:” Get it?

I am reminded of the recent The Three Stooges movie homage to the original comic team that had the boys willingly attempt a mercy killing.  This is nothing less than the normalization of suicide.

Oh, and by the way, this idea was already proposed for real in Oregon ($5000 for the whole package, including music and flowers), but the psychiatrist would-be entrepreneur lost his medical license for other reasons before he could open the doors.  Meanwhile, in Switzerland, suicide clinics rake in the dough.

Culture of death, Wesley?  What culture of death?
